Professional grade dovetail machine
Solid cast aluminium shell with large, ergonomically shaped table surface, precision linear bearings, galvanized steel motor carriage with integrated motor. Fine adjustment and digital displays for routing height and routing location.
The keyway location is adjusted by positioning the guided center fence plate on the machine table; The keyway length (routing height) is adjusted by setting a height-stop to the desired setting. Both positions are shown on seperate digital displays for accuracy and repeatability.
Pressing the pneumatic foot pedal starts the machining cycle
- Pneumatic clamp, secures work
- Router head advances until pre-ser height is reached
- Router head returns to home position and motor is switched off
- Pneumatic clamp releases work-piece
The MU3-PD model is the more automated version of the MU 3 and MU3-D models.
A short stroke cylinder is used to clamp the material the instant the foot pedal is pressed, while a second, larger cylinder is used to move the router carriage up and down.
The main benefits compared to the manual machines are faster and provide a more comfortable operation, and more consistent results due to set routing feed rates and the fact both hands can remain on the material during the routing sequence, A very important advantage when proccessing longer parts.
